1 The Counties Role In Implementation, Operation and Funding of Criminal Justice Technology at the Local Level Debra Nesbit, Associate Legislative Director Association County Commissioners of Georgia ACCG

2 How are technology needs currently procured and paid for by County Criminal Justice Agencies? Criminal Justice Agency County Constitutional Officer Procurement Funded Sheriff (Law Enforcement/Jail) Yes Sheriff County General Fund County Police (10 Departments) No County County General Fund District Attorney No (State) DA/County County General Fund/Other Clerk of Superior Court Yes Clerk County General Fund Magistrate Court No Judge/County County General Fund Probate Court Yes Judge County General Fund Juvenile Court No Judge/County County General Fund State Court No Judge/County County General Fund Superior Court No (State) Judge/County County General Fund Note: Some State, Probate and Magistrate Courts have local legislation for a Technology Fee Note: The Superior Court Clerk s Authority provides some hardware for Superior Court Clerks

3 Who has made the investment in technology that is in place at the County Level? THE COUNTY Although the county pays for the technology, they do not make the decision about what technology is purchased, particularly for the Constitutional Officers. If the Constitutional Officer has the funding in their budget, they can make the decision as to what to purchase.

4 Who is the largest user of the data from the systems the counties have paid for besides the day to day user? THE STATE How much has the state invested in the systems at the local level that collect the data they require? Nothing

5 Fees as a Revenue Source What does it look like? Sample Civil Filing in Superior Court Base Filing Fee $58.00 Deduction Superior Court Clerks Retirement Fund Deduction Law Library Fee Total to County General Fund $ Superior Court Clerks Retirement Fund Sheriff s Retirement Fund Indigent Defense Fund Up to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Judicial Operations Fund TOTAL TO FILER $ County General Fund = $ State General Fund Local Designated = $ Judicial Operations Fund and Indigent Defense Fund = $ Law Library and ADR

6 Sample DUI Case in State Court DUI Fine $ Deduction Police Officer s Annuity and Benefit Fund (POAB) Deduction Superior Court Clerks Retirement Fund (SCCRF) Deduction Sheriff s Retirement Fund (SRF) Joshua s Law Police Officer Prosecutor Training Fund (POPTF-A) Indigent Defense Fund (POPTF-B) Crime Victims Emergency Fund (CVEF) Brain and Spinal Injury Trust Fund (BSITF) State General Fund (Crime Lab Fee) Jail Fund Drug Abuse Treatment Education Fund (DATE) Local Victims Assistance Program (LVAP) Law Library FINAL TOTAL FINE $1, County General Fund $ Retirement Annuity Funds $74.00 State Controlled Funds $ Local Designated Use Funds $460.00

7 WHO PAYS FOR THE OPERATION OF THE COURTS? THE COUNTY Some salaries in superior court are state paid, but the county funds all operating costs and salaries for non state paid employees at the superior court level, all salaries and operations for all other levels of court and the clerk s office.

8 HOW CAN STATWIDE TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION BE FUNDED? The counties say No New Fees, Please!

9 Other Alternatives The Judicial Operations Fund was created by the Legislature in 2010 The Fee is $ on all civil filings in superior court that is remitted to the State General Fund with no designated purpose A $ Fee is applied to all civil filings in state court, with $75.00 remitted to the State General Fund, and $50.00 retained at the local level. Note: State court is fully funded by the county

10 How Much Revenue Does the Judicial Operations Fund Generate? FY 2010 (one month) $ 794,125 FY 2011 (first full year) $ 31,024,485 FY 2012 $ 24,842,001 FY 2013 $ 21,622,836 FY 2014 $ 19,128,853 FY 2015 (1 st Quarter) $ 4,895,785 TOTAL COLLECTED $102,308,085

11 Judicial Operations Fund This fund seems an appropriate funding mechanism for Court Technology perhaps a portion of this fee can be used to fund the technology integration.

12 THANK YOU!!! ACCG appreciates this committee studying this important issue and allowing us to provide you with information today.
